posted in: Fleet News, News, Van News | 0

Heating and electrical engineering firm JD Mounsey was so impressed with the new British built Vauxhall Vivaro that it has now replaced its fleet of vans with eight new Vivaros.

The company is based in Yorkshire and started life in 1994 with its first batch of Vauxhall vans.

Now the firm, which also carries out plumbing, electrical as well as security and heating work, has five short wheelbase panel vans and too long wheelbase versions too.

They also have a short wheelbase double cab crew van.

Vauxhall Vivaro extras

The firm has also opted for Vauxhall Vivaro extras such as Bluetooth connectivity and air conditioning and all of the vans have a load length extender which runs underneath the passenger seat so long items can be accommodated.

The firm’s founder, Jonathan Mounsey, said: “Nothing has the reliability, space and fuel economy of a Vauxhall Vivaro.

“We can take on all types of work regardless of its complexity or size in the industrial, commercial and domestic sectors. To do that, we need vans that can be relied on and there’s no downtime with the Vivaro.”

All of the firm’s Vivaros have been specified as the Sportive models and have a 1.6 CDTI BiTurbo ecoFlex engine under the bonnet which produces 120 PS.

Vauxhall Vivaro is capable of returning 48 mpg

In most businesses, economy can be crucial and the Vauxhall Vivaro is capable of returning 48 mpg and has CO2 emissions of 155g/km.

Vauxhall’s commercial vehicle manager, Richard Callier, said: “It’s fantastic that we have supplied the fourth batch of British built vans to JD Mounsey and it’s the small businesses that are the backbone of the country’s economy.”
